Somers residents demand road improvements after crash

The death of 7-year-old Madison Bookall in a car crash in Somers has sparked calls for changes on the road where it happened.

People who live near Mahopac Avenue have launched a petition drive to get safety improvements made.

They want guard rails and at least one new stop sign installed on the road that runs past several local farms.

A town meeting to discuss safety changes for the roadway is planned for tomorrow at Somers Town Hall.
